Llandrindod Wells to: Newtown
A terrific road set in beautiful Welsh countryside. A combination of wide sweeping bends and tight demanding hairpins. Not recommended for Harley's or other fat boys.!
Guisborough to: Whitby.
The A171 from Middlesbrough to Whitby now bypasses Guisborough but it's worth starting this ride in this picturesque market town. The road leaves Guisborough through farmland and woodlands and the steep 500 ft. climb up on to the North Yorkshire Moors is made at Birk Brow with two tight, tight bends and great views on your left. After the climb, the road swoops down past Lockwood Beck reservoir and starts to unfold before you, plenty of very fast sections with long, sweeping bends as well lots of undulations. Point to note - on the section past Scaling Reservoir, beware speed traps. The Grapes pub is here and it is well worth a stop. The descent into Whitby begins three miles out of town and the view of this beautiful fishing and holiday town laid out beneath you is breathtaking. Drop into town and ride around the West harbour, ending off by ascending the cliff and parking up next to the whalebones. Best fish and chips in town can be found in The Magpie Cafe next to the fishmarket. For the return journey, you are faced with a hard choice. Either reverse the route just taken or take the picturesque but very much slower coastal road, the A 174/3.
Mablethorpe to: Cleethorpes & back
Not very long but nice & twisty through a couple of villages,not many cars & no speed traps, (at least not on last trip). When you arrive in Cleethorpes find the A46 out towards Lincoln, you will come accross the A18, turn left towards Louth (another nice road) this will eventually bring you out on the A16 at Ludborough, turn right towards Louth and go round the by-pass and either take the A16 down towards Skegness for fast sweeping bends or go straight on round the by-pass and take the A157 back towards Maltby Le Marsh & Mablethorpe for another tight & twisty road.
Alton, Hampshire to: Fareham, Hampshire
If you're lucky with the traffic then this is a real challenge. There are a couple of strictly 30MPH bits thrown in along the way (including a shaming device that lights up and tells you that you're going too quick)but otherwise sweeping bends and long straights.
